Gunflint Lodge

Taking its name from its location on the historic Gunflint Trail, Gunflint Lodge is ideally suited to accommodate both wilderness adventure seekers and those whose idea of adventure includes all the refined offerings of a full-service lodge.

Surrounded on all sides by the million-acre Boundary Waters Canoe Area, our 23 lakeside cabins come with one- to four-bedrooms (each with its own bathroom), a full kitchen and a beautiful stone fireplace. Select cabins also have hot tubs, washer/dryer units and other comfortable amenities.

After days of fishing, hiking, swimming and relaxing, enjoy a meal in one of our two highly-rated dining areas in our main lodge.

Our History

In 1927 Justine Kerfoot explored the Gunflint Trail and fell in love with the remote wilderness, beautiful lakes, abundant wildlife and the rugged pioneer area that was just being opened up to visitors. Soon after, she bought Gunflint Lodge with it's 3 Minnesota log cabins and a small store with supplies sold to the local Chippewas and a few fishermen. Over the years, Gunflint grew from a rustic resort to one of Minnesota's premier year-round resorts.
